ICC T20 World Cup: England vs New Zealand live | ENG vs NZ Live
England vs New Zealand live: New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat first against England in their crucial tie in Pallekele, where both sides need to win to ensure progression to the next round of the tournament.
Both sides lost their first Super Eights matches, with the Black Caps losing to Sri Lanka in a Super Over, while England lost to the West Indies by 15 runs. The result of the match between the hosts and the Windies later today will determine who advances.
England have dropped Jade Dernbach and Samit Patel, replacing them with all-rounder Tim Bresnan and spinner Danny Briggs. The Kiwis are without Jacob Oram, who is ill, which means Doug Bracewell gets a game.
England: Craig Kieswetter, Alex Hales, Luke Wright, Eoin Morgan, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Danny Briggs, Steve Finn
New Zealand: Martin Guptill, James Franklin, Brendon McCullum, Ross Taylor, Rob Nicol, Dan Vettori, Doug Bracewell, Kane Williamson, Nathan McCullum, Tim Southee, Kyle Mills
